CALEDONIA—Local talent Sienna Rose Kocsis has placed third in this year’s Rising Star Competition at the Canadian National Exhibition.
“It feels incredible to even make it close to the finals, especially with all of the amazingly talented people I got to complete with. It makes me feel fantastic,” said the young singer.
Sienna wowed the audience with a powerhouse rendition of My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion. The thought of getting on a stage and singing in front of a live audience may be mortifying for many, but for Sienna the stage is where she shines the brightest: “Performing in front of people has always been something I love to do and being able to express myself in many ways makes me feel proud of myself and makes me love what I do more and more.”
